TORONTO, Jan. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Partners Value Investments LP (the “Partnership”) (TSX VENTURE: PVF) announced today that it received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) for the renewal of its normal course issuer bids to purchase up to 3,373,123 of its non‐voting equity limited partnership units (the “Equity LP Units”), representing approximately 5% of its currently outstanding Equity LP Units, (the “Equity Bid”); and to purchase up to 801,918 of its non‐voting Class A Preferred limited partnership units, Series 1 (the “Preferred LP Units”), representing approximately 5% of its currently outstanding Preferred LP Units, (the “Preferred Bid”) (collectively, the “Bids”). The period of the Bids will be effective from January 14, 2022 to January 13, 2023, or such earlier date that the Partnership completes its purchases.

Purchases by the Partnership pursuant to the Bids will be made by its broker, RBC Capital Markets, through the facilities of the Exchange, other designated exchanges and alternative trading systems in Canada. The price which the Partnership will pay for any Equity LP Units and Preferred LP Units purchased will be the market price of the Equity LP Units and Preferred LP Units at the time of acquisition. Any Equity LP Units and/or Preferred LP Units acquired through the Bids will be cancelled. As of December 22, 2021, there were 67,462,461 Equity LP Units outstanding and 16,038,362 Preferred LP Units outstanding.

Of the 3,669,481 Equity LP units and 999,828 Preferred LP Units approved for purchase under the Partnership’s prior normal course issuer bids that commenced on October 1, 2020 and expired on September 30, 2021, the Partnership purchased 109,500 Equity LP Units and did not make any purchase of Preferred LP Units through the facilities of the Exchange.

The Partnership believes that, from time to time, the market price of the securities may not adequately reflect their value. In such circumstances, the Partnership believes that its outstanding securities may represent an appropriate and desirable use of its available funds. All Equity LP Units and Preferred LP Units acquired by the Partnership under this bid will be cancelled.

In connection with the Bids, the Partnership entered into an automatic purchase plan with its designated broker, RBC Capital Markets. The automatic purchase plan will allow for the purchase of Equity LP Units and Preferred LP Units when the Partnership would not ordinarily be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods, insider trading rules or otherwise. Outside of these periods, Equity LP Units and Preferred LP Units will be repurchased in accordance with management’s discretion and in compliance with applicable law.
